Strategies for Developing Work Zone Traffic Analyses is an interactive Web-based training course that provides an overview of how traffic analysis tools can be applied specifically to work zone analysis problems. Traffic analysis tools represent various transportation modeling approaches such as sketch planning, travel demand modeling, and traffic simulation (microscopic, mesoscopic, and simulation approaches).

The purpose of this course is three-fold. First, it will educate the participants regarding the constraints and opportunities of work zone analysis associated with available transportation modeling approaches. Second, it will build familiarity with the various work zone factors influencing the selection of a transportation modeling approach. Third, it will provide the participants with practical experience in developing a transportation modeling approach in a collaborative process that considers issues ranging from work zone characteristics, performance measurement, technical risk assessment, and resource constraints. In conclusion, participants will be able to characterize a work zone and select and justify a transportation modeling approach based upon the work zone characterization.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Define a role for work zone modeling
  • Describe the work zone analysis decision-making engine
  • Explain how to characterize a work zone
  • Identify transportation modeling approaches
  • Describe alternative transportation modeling approaches
  • Justify selection of a transportation modeling approach


The Strategies for Developing Work Zone Traffic Analyses (WBT) is designed for professionals employed by State DOTs (district engineers, corridor planners, project engineers, traffic engineers, and work zone planners), FHWA Division Offices Staff, transportation engineers, traffic staff, planners, MPOs, and consultants.
